Star Keeper

The is the digi I chose from a recent Digistamps4joy win. I thought it would make the ideal Christmas card image for a couple of friends of mine. The lady's name as you might have guessed is "Star Keeper". After colouring her with promarkers, I decided to follow the sketch over at Midnight Madness this week. There are 2 different patterned papers used, a freebie digi and papermania I think. The top and bottom panels were made by stamping and embossing (several times) a little snow flake stamp I have. I attached a length of chain after attaching yet more little stars and a little bell on it using the peeloff snow flake centres, added stickles to the attaching brads. The other snowflakes I just added some tiny rhinestones. The simpe flower ( I wanted nothing to detract from the image) has a home made pin in it. All this then mounted onto white cardstock and silver peeloffs to surround.

Some of the detail ....

I am entering this into The Midnight Madness sketch Challenge #77
